SummaryThe talk will present an overview of Robotics Projects partially funded by European Committee, National Italian Ministry of University and Research, and Private Companies. The central point of the talk will be the “Mechanics of Machines and Robots”, and how the mechanical background helped us to solve hardware and software robotic problems. In a second part of the presentation, the ongoing projects will be fast presented. The talk aims at proposing novel points for discussion and further joint collaborations among Politecnico di
Torino (Italy) and University Rovira i Virgili (Spain).
